Partake of Freedoms offered...
Just to understand the cost that
has been paid for that right

Hanging proudly and blowing in a
gentle wind...was The American Flag
on my porch yesterday for all to view

When I decided to take some trash
out...a family of another nationality

was walking across the street, and
greeted me with...

"How you doing today?"

I responded well...but I decided
to converse with a question....
Do you know what today is?

The smallest child crossed
the street to come closer to
me with a firecracker in hand

Again I asked the question,
receiving no response...I
offered such....Today is our
Independence Day for freedom
to be The United States of
America...Our National Birthday!

The only following response was
from the Mother...a call to her
daughter to come back as they
continued walking past my house

While a teardrop fell yesterday
upon my face

(c) A Teardrop fell Yesterday

A friend of mine and I were walking on the evening of July 3rd and had a similar incident. The gentelman I was walking with is a Veteran of Desert Storm. We talked with a group of kids about the 4th of July celebration. A history lesson was given there on the street. While a tear drops for lack of knowledge by some, a sense of responsibility also wells up inside...we as adults need to be sure to take time to talk to kids and others who have chosen to come to our country about things like the flag and Independence Day. Great write, Vivian.

After reading this. I had my eyes with tears. Just to know how much our men and women are continuing the fight for our freedom. While others see it as a holiday only. Very well penned Lady Vivian. God Bless. George AKA THE WISE OLD OWL

This one touched me deeply Vivian. So sad some of those who seek refuge here have no respect for the American Spirit.

Devotion to one's country is commendable, it is clear you feel this devotion strongly. Sadly self-absorbtion is now the order of the day. Keep flying your flag.

A poet need have a vivid imagination
and a commanding way of versing it

This being My true was not
hard to verbalize my feelings

So, for the ones who chose to read
and comment...I gladly give You a
Heartfelt thanks

The Red, The White and The Blue
is stained with such tears for
the freedom that we enjoy...may
our future citizens not let the
ones who died for that cause
be in vain

i have a self-imposed policy of not
commenting on other nation's politics
or citizens' political views, but i'd just
like to say this is a moving work and it's
written with heart.

Oh, how I can relate to your poem, Vivian... so well stated with feeling.I flew my flag yesterday and had a patriotic wreath on my front door, but sadly there were very few others who did. Yes, a tear shed for the state of this once proud country. An excellent read, indeed.

I'd've spat on the sidewalk instead of crying. Yeah, I'm in a bad mood. They turned a monster loose in Florida a few hours ago.

Vivian I enjoyed"A Teardrop Fell Yesterday" very much but more than a poem it seemed like your heartfelt thoughts were put in writing.Sad but true that is the response you would get more times than I care to think about.To those people I would say "I love my country and may God continue to bless America." Thank you Vivian,I enjoy your work more than words can say.
